"I'd like my jewellery to invite reflection on the ever-changing aspects of the environment around us." Susan Lee Stephen
Susan Lee Stephen, originally from Yellowknife, NWT, has called Newfoundland home for the past twelve years. She has experiemented in many different mediums and techniques over the years, most recently textiles and welding, but her ongoing interest in jewellery has won out. With a myriad of jewellery workshops and a completed certificate in jewellery arts from the Haliburton School of The Arts, Susan now works full time from her home jewellery studio in St. John's.
Susan's jewellery is primarily silver, with elements of copper, bronze, brass and semi-precious stones incorporated to add colour, texture and dimension. Inspiration for her pieces comes from the ideas of transition and change. Silhouetted imagery suggests shadows and moments frozen in time. Often, unexpected elements are hidden in the designs - a bird in the tree branches, or a nest behind bullrushes - evidence of the constant ebb and flow of the natural world.
